I’d rather it be Sharknado than Jaws.

Magic 8 ball says ....

Licensed Fathom Remake


#227 6 months ago
Quoted from flynnibus:

curious if Oz is radically different. Tell us rotordave

Shipping a whole container of pins works out pretty cheap (per pin)

Like ... around $100-150 per unit when I last did it (used, unboxed pins)

International shipping is stuffed at the moment though. Huge delays everywhere.

Hopefully it’ll come right in the next year.

Sorta funny seeing the same preorder guys say “I’m in!!” again

Good on ya.

Has there even been a gameplay video yet?


#234 6 months ago
Quoted from cooked71:

I had my own gameplay preview last time I played Fathom.


But this one is slightly different ... for starters it has ...

- a different playfield
- different modes
- different CPU
- different flippers

I was more making the point that the same pre order guys are “in again!”


#238 6 months ago
Quoted from cooked71:

Yeh. Preorder guys do it as much for the “entertainment” as the end product.

I’m guessing that’s the case.


#239 6 months ago
Quoted from cooked71:

That’s a given - especially if it’s hard top. Plus we’re talking a 40 year gap in electronic technology.

I think it will play way faster.

- Plastic playfield, ball flies on those
- new modern 50v flippers

I think it’ll play fast as hell.

Better have some spare drops on hand!

Quoted from Boof-Ed:

I’d find it very hard to drop AU$6k non-refundable on four titles that I have no idea of what they are, when they would be coming and price of each.


Seriously though ... the only Bally 77-85 pins that would/could command $8000-9000 bucks for a new one are Fathom and Centaur.

Nobody is paying 8000 bucks for Fireball 2 - as cool as it is. Mine was $400 USD! Lol

KISS would be one that could fit the bill, if they can get the licence. It took Gary Stern 6 years to get Gene down to a reasonable amount. Gary told me Gene wanted $1m cash up front at the start.

So ... fathom and centaur ... yes

The others ... not so much.

Not in volume anyway.


#439 6 months ago


Who’s gonna pay $9,000 USD for Escape from the Lost World!

Or Skateball. Or Viking. Or Voltan. Or Frontier. Or Evel Knievel.

Some crazy talk going on in this thread.


#472 6 months ago
Quoted from oldskool1969:

I love all the speculation and bagging about Haggis going on this thread

I don’t think there’s been any bagging of Haggis ... not that I’ve seen anyway.

I think everyone thinks Fathom is a great choice.

Should have been done years ago.

The only negative posts I’ve seen are about the price ... people seem to think you can make a game with no ramps (wholesale cost probably $50 ...) for way less than a game with ramps for some strange reason.

And conjecture on what other games they’ll make other than the obvious Fathom and Centaur.

Good on Haggis, I hope they make a shit load of them.

Quoted from Haymaker:

On the topic of acrylic playfields, bally speakeasy had one way back in the day and those have seemed to held up

No, they were resin/plastic. The whole thing. They often warped.

Elektra had the clear overlay on the whole main playfield, over the top of the lower playfield.

Same as what they’re doing here.

Bout time the poms started building pinball machines

They had a go if you remember.

Also big in hovercrafts ...

Even Ben Heck likes Vegemite.

(Well, he ate it while he was here ...).

Quoted from mtn-:

Looks like the little dog likes it too!

For sure!

Toby and Ming would rip your arm off for a taste of the sweet sweet Vegemite goodness!

Quoted from Mr68:

Here is my PayPal charge: Total $1,500.00 AUD
Here is my Credit Card charge: Total $1,212.46
There are no other associated charges on either of those accounts. Not sure what else I can say.

PayPal factors their fees into their charges, and don’t tell you about it. They also give you a shitty exchange rate.

If you directly paid $1500 AUD in USD it would be $1167.

The cheapest way (believe me, I send a lot of dough!) is to do an international bank transfer. The cost is the exchange rate factor (usually a point or so) and generally a $15-20 bank fee, depending on the bank.

I use PayPal for low amounts as it’s easy and hassle free. But for anything over say $1000 ... bank transfer.

You’ll all want to set up bank transfers when it comes time to pay the balance. It will save you hundreds of dollars.

Quoted from punkin:

It's nearly $200 cheaper and that's only over 10k. Send 60k and see how much you'll save.

That’s a pretty sweet deal.

I’m lucky that my bank rate is only a little over the actual exchange .. I don’t know if it’s regulated here or not, but it’s nowhere near 3%.

When I was buying 40ft containers of furniture, you’re sending $30,000 - $40,000 USD at a time (100x per year) so every percent helps!

Quoted from RyanStl:

You know what, I'm mixed, but already hooked.


It really is pretty grouse, as our Aussie pals would say.


#843 5 months ago
Quoted from punkin:

You Kiwi's will claim anything. First it's the pavlova and now Marmite?

Yeah, English stuff is way different.

Only the name is the same. Must of licenced the name 100 years ago.

Vegemite is my go to though.


#846 5 months ago
Quoted from punkin:

102 years ago.
We make Heinken here under license, but we don't call it an Aussie beer....

Oh, I would never call Marmite a NZ thing.

Everyone (well, most people) know it’s English.

As Vegemite is Australian.

Both are made here though.

Quoted from RGR:

lol love how this has turned into a food thread

Lack of Haggis ...

(See why I did there ...)

Quoted from flynnibus:

So interestingly enough, in Haggis' latest video, the Creative Director states that their 'scratch resistant coating' is in fact a clear coat application... claiming it will play like any other playfield.
This is 'good news', but also slightly contradictory to prior info unless they have yet again changed their process since Celts' ordering. If their scratch resistant coating were a form of 2pac clear... why would they have offered three versions in Celts? It would make option #3 redundant to option #2.
That would explain another reason for lack of options on Fathom (besides simplification and just pushing your lead product) - but its interesting to hear their vaulted coating is possibly a resin on top.

Yeah I also heard that in the video ...

Seems superfluous to clear coat acrylic?

PS guy had a nice line up of Ballys! A few clues there as to the next titles.


#1096 5 months ago
Quoted from Our_Man_in_Oz:

I said major....calling soccer a major football code here is like calling it major in the US


Almost twice as many people play “soccer” in Aussie as League, AFL and rugby put together.

It’s the same here.

Basketball is the biggest growing sport there and here. All the kids are playing it.

Quoted from Micky:

Get out of here with your facts

Yeah! Stupid facts!

I was surprised Cricket was so low.

If you’d asked me before I looked it up I would have guessed

- soccer
- cricket
- netball
- basketball
- Aussie rules/NRL around the same.

I think NRL was only 150k

Lots of parents are steering their kids away from the heavy contact sports - hence the rise in basketball.
